Here we are practicing to count on the blurp's abbycus. By the way, that lost little kitten we posted about earlier got a nice home with a retired lady who just lost her own kitty. Thanks for all your concern!

Feral Colony and lost little kitty

Ok, it's gone too far... Mommy has been feeding the feral kitties that live on our street. There are many of them and it started with putting food out in the backyard or the driveway. Then the food moved closer and closer until most recently there was a feral kitty every morning and every evening (and often in between) on our back deck looking for some foods. Then, Mommy had to stop feeding the kitties because well, frankly the yard started smelling like a big litterbox and she saw a flea on her leg one day while petting Ollie. Not being an outdoor cat, Ollie could have only had a flea hop on him from one of the ferals coming so close to the door to eat. She was sad about this but tried to stand firm for our safety and for the safety of our blurp. She was doing really well with not feeding them and even put the big bag of foods she bought especially for them in the shed so she wouldn't be tempted to slip them a little plate once and a while.

But then, yesterday, Mommy and the blurp were heading outside and stopped dead in their tracks to witness one of the ferals trying to get its brand-new kittens across the front lawn from the hostas to under the house. Well, they must have scared them because the momma and two babies took off but left behind one of the little babies who just wailed and wailed. Mommy was so nervous and put out milk and cat food (gotten from the shed) for the little left-behind kitten and hoped that maybe the food and milk would also make the mommy come back looking for it. Alas, hours later when she and the blurp returned the poor little kitten was still there. Sad and still and alone. Mommy got very nervous now because it had been several hours and it was very cold and the mommy clearly wasn't coming back for it. Thankfully, our Uncle Mike is an ER vet nurse and of course mommy called him for advice. After talking to Uncle Mike, mommy decided to get the kitten to a safe warm place out in the shed in a box with towels and then she fed him milk from an eyedropper. At first, he barely opened his mouth and she was thinking that he was in pretty bad shape but she managed to get a couple of drops in. Then, she went back to check on him and he lapped up about 3 droppers full of milk! Between mommy and our neighbor, Aunt Christine, that kitten got lots of love and milk for a few hours and it must have done him real good. Uncle Mike came by and picked him up and took him to the ER where they checked his fluids and checked him for diseases and he came back fine and all negative. The kitten can't eat or go to the bathroom by itself yet so it has a lot of learning to do but he's in good hands now and will surely be better off in many ways once he finds his forever home. Speaking of which we are a little annoyed but Mommy and Daddy said that since his tests for bad diseases came back negative, if the good nurses don't find him a forever home we might be taking him in here. Hrmph. Not sure we like the sounds of this but hopefully it won't come to pass...

Not exactly a "safe" zone

But somehow it feels safer in here anyway... If I tuck my head down, maybe she won't find me.

Happy Belated Fathers Day Daddy

Mommy sure has a lot of excuses these days (blah blah blah possible broken toe. blah blah blah caught the blurpy's cold. blah blah blah green papers deadlines.) so we really have no apologies for her. We sure missing visiting all your bloggies as much. We hope to catch up with you all again real soon. Please do not think we don't care or don't love you all and think of you often - we do!! We also wanted to tell our Daddy how much we love him (even though Mommy didn't have time to help us blog on Fathers Day). Daddy is the reason Ollie does not live in the shelter anymore. Ollie is Daddy's special pal. Here is Ollie giving Daddy some love. We hope all your daddys and food dudes had super special days, too!!

You say it's our birthday!!!

Today is our birthday!!! We had a low key but fun time today celebrating our birthdays. Mommy gave us each our own salmon cake with a candle in it. And, we wore crowns. Ok, "wore" perhaps isn't the right word but we *enjoyed* crowns which made us feel very special.

Rainy days

We don't really mind all this rain. Mommy and Daddy and Blurpy get a little nuts about it raining so much but rain is good. Rain means you get sleepy and need to nap. Rain means birdies come out and get food and take baths. Rain means beans don't leave the house as much. We think rain is pretty great actually!! Happy Rainy Days to all!

Oh, but this photo was taken when there was actually still sun in the sky. We did this to help the beans remember what it was like.

I love my blurp

You know, I sort of wanted to be alone with myself but then the blurpy wanted to play. So, I did. then, I got annoyed and went and played with the easter carnage instead.

Happy Easter!!

We're having a great Easter day so far and hope you all are, too!! Hope the Easter Bunny brought you lots of great plastic eggs to swat (he sure brought us lots of them this year but for some reason the Blurpy Girl keeps taking them) and lots of HAM!!

Mancat Monday

Real Mancats like ride-on toys, too.

(At least somebody gets to use it since our blurpy doesn't understand how to ride it yet.)

Edie and Floyd

Well, here are some more silly woofies in scarves. Mommy gave these woofies matching scarves for Christmas and apparently they love wearing them!! Perhaps you remember we introduced you to Floyd and Edie back in September. These adorable woofies are and the fur kids of our mommy and daddy's friends, Chris and Jim. We are glad they liked their christmas presents!!! Again these scarves (and the ones mommy gave to Bailey and Chaeli) were made by a local artisan here in Lansdowne at 79west designs. Cool, huh??

What a month

Wow! We can't believe our last post was so long ago now... It's been a busy month for our beans because our blurpy sister's 1 year birthday was on March 26th and Mommy and Daddy were busy preparing for a big family party and out of town guests. In addition to that Mommy has been very busy in her free moments with some consulting projects that are eatin' up all her time she would normally give us on the computer with her. This, we feel, is just not fair. We know she needs to help bring in some green papers but seriously, we do not like it when we cannot check our friends' blogs and see what is going on. For example, we didn't even know Kimo had to go to the V-E-T recently until Mommy told us because she says she saw it on facebook. WE say "stop spending your time making green papers and checking facebook and help us blog!!" What do you think?? Should Daddy help us blog more since Mommy has been so MIA? Also, Mommy claims that because our blurpy girl still is getting up at weird hours that somehow that is affecting her ability to help us blog. Come on lady... If you're up at 4am, that's more time for blogging, right???

Anyhooo... the party was hit with the beans though we stayed upstairs all day once the guests started to arrive. Here are some photos of Ollie with the Birthday Girl before her party really got going, though.

Fun Furry Friday

Well, we could have saved this for a Mancat Monday post but we thought it fitting for a fun, furry friday post anyway. Hope you and your beans have a wonderful weekend!
